Teaser Tuesdays: The Mist in the Mirror


This week my teaser lines come from Susan Hill's The Mist in the Mirror, a novel inspired by classic ghost tales. In this snippet (from Chapter 5/Loc.835), the main character is beginning to realize there really is a ghost following him around London:
He stood, pale, ragged, utterly still in the circle of lamplight and as I stared directly at him he raised his head, turned his face up to me, his eyes seeking mine out. And so we stayed, as if frozen in some other time and place, I, James Monmouth, in the dark, upper room of the house, and the ghost of the boy in the cold street below.
This is one of the books I'm reading for RIP/9, and so far I'm loving it.

  1. I often wonder what I would do if I saw a ghost at the top of the stairs. I know one thing, I wouldn't go up, even if the ghost was Casper I wouldn't go up. If I was James, I'd wait a long time before getting out of the house. Not because I'm afraid, but because ghosts should be admired from afar. hehe.

    Great teaser!

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
